An armed suspect who opened fire before he barricaded himself in a Coral Springs home Friday surrendered hours later, officials said.

Coral Springs Police said the incident began around 8 a.m. when the 25-year-old suspect showed up at his mother's home in the area of Wiles Road and Creekside Drive.

The suspect was upset about a car accident he'd been involved in and got into an argument with his mother, police said.

At one point, the man pulled out a gun and put it on a counter, and his mother felt threatened so she left and called police, officials said.

When officers arrived, the man made threats that he wanted to kill someone or wanted to be killed himself, police said.

The officers heard the man fire several gunshots inside the house, and he came outside and fired more rounds before he barricaded himself in the home, officials said.

No injuries were reported, and officials said the man was alone in the home.

Late Friday afternoon, the man surrendered without incident, officials said. Charges are pending.

No other information was immediately known.
